The Baobab is a prehistoric species which predates both mankind and the splitting of the continents over 200 million years ago. There's 9 species of Baobab trees in the world, 6 from Madagascar, 2 from Africa and 1 from Australia. The Baobabs store large volume of water in their trunks explaining their very large size. The largest in record was 47 meters in circumference!! They can live up to 5000 years. It is a symbol of life and positivity in a landscape where little else thrive. It is also known as "The Tree of Life" due to his ability to produce a nutrient-dense fruit in the dry season when all around is dry and arid.
